Upgrade available of www/p5-libwww, from 5.63 to 5.64

Changes :

    Simplified the Makefile.PL:
       - the scripts are not longer *.PL files

       - don't try to make symlinks for GET, HEAD, POST
         as that has not worked for a long time

       - the GET, HEAD, POST aliases for lwp-request should
         now work on Windows.

       - added 'clear_temporary_cookies' method;
         patch by Mike Schilli <>.

       - trailing space in old cookie parameters not ignored;
         patch by Ivan Panchenko

       - protect against $SIG{__DIE__} handlers;
         patch by Adam Newby <>.

       - abort digest auth session if we fail repeatedly with
         the same username/password.
